Lincoln's Fully Electric SUV Coming in 2022

By Staff Writer June 16, 2021 197
The Ford Motor Company has amped up its drive into the EV market with Wednesday's announcement that its luxury Lincoln brand would go fully electric by 2030. 
 
Ford is calling the move to electric the auto manufacturer's next chapter and is expecting nearly half of its global volume will be all-electric vehicles around 2025. Ford's Lincoln brand jumps in with a new “elegant” EV SUV, being released in 2022. 
 
The new Lincoln will share styling aspects with Ford’s concept sedan for the Chinese market, the Zephyr Reflection, and will feature the next stage in the brand's "Quiet Flight" design language. Ford is targeting a driving range in the vicinity of 300 miles, off-road ability, and performance inspired by the Ford Mustang. This new electric Lincoln will ride on a new battery architecture that can accommodate both rear- and all-wheel-drive. The SUV will feature Lincoln Active Glide, a semi-autonomous driving mode with hands-free capability. 
 
In April 2020, Lincoln announced the cancellation of its joint venture with the Plymouth, Mich.-based EV producer Rivian to build an SUV called the Mach-E,  due to the pandemic. Lincoln is subsequently using Ford’s Mustang EV platform to build the Lincoln EV SUV.
